It has been a bit busy here, with details about the house to be decided upon, data to be collected, student problems to be solved, and vets to visit.
Pilot went to the vet yesterday.
He loves the vet, mostly because of the snacks. Anyway, I had a niggling of a concern that there might be something wrong with him--he has had a small lump on his back and it seems to have grown recently, and I read on the Internet (of course) that fatty lumps (which I thought his was) can turn into cancer. Well, I was wrong, it wasn't a fatty lump but rather a cyst somewhat like a large pimple (or as we call it now, his dormant volcano). So it will either burst or grow big enough to remove, but there is nothing to be concerned about!
I have been gathering these:
And the alpacas are either thrilled to see me or apathetic (usually a 50/50 split). I had lots of apples today and everyone had plenty.
Even this guy, who has never eaten an apple in front of me:
And after apples there was time for a little bath for Georgia, Calypso's sister.
